One way that camps get started is by previous campers suggesting locales. After meeting Fraser at Type Camp California 2011, I thought that it was time for one in New Zealand.
I stopped over on my way back home from the Australia 2012 camp and hung out with his mentor, the brilliant and oh-so-lovely Caroline Powley.
Pictured is Claude, Caroline’s roommate. He is often disenchanted with the world, and with Caroline. She took me out (on ‘official business’) to a nearby beach. It was amazing! I swear that Holly Hunter was playing the piano on the beach just nearby.
I loved my time there, from the Maori design motifs to the crafty shops around the town (dresses made out of paper maps? I’m in love!) – there was so much to see and be inspired by. I’m ready to go back NOW.
And then, all at once, my life became connected as I had a lovely dinner with Fraser, Caroline, and Jessica, who had just attended the Australia camp the previous week.
Anyone want a Type Camp in New Zealand? Let me know . . . .
